    Well What'ya know about that?

    I didn't know you could do that. Any concerns with heat at the ends of the resistors?

    Yes sir, been fun to play with haha

    No heat build up that I have seen. Actually have seen improved cooling with the resistor having air on all sides and nothing around it

    Haha, I really was trying to think of a way to secure it without taking away from the design of the inductor, it is a striking design in person given its size and weight

    Nice way to showcase it for sure. Quite often, thinking outside the box, per se, pays off.

    Thank you for the kind words!

    Maybe one day, life is just to crazy and I'm lacking tools and space to do to that type of production. But I do plan to have a shop built at some point and at that point I could see dabbling into such endeavors! When I had access to a wood shop I was building as many speaker cabinets as I could haha!
